A high-energy, interactive, one-day workshop
“Storytelling is the essential human activity. The harder the situation, the more essential it is.
In this high-energy, interactive, one-day workshop, you will learn how to harness the power of stories to forge authentic connections with business partners, prospects and clients.
Intentional Storytelling helps you develop the confidence and skills to incorporate stories in presentations, speaking engagements and other interactions to build trust, connection and credibility.
Many people are uncomfortable with incorporating personal or professional stories in their conversations and presentations. They feel stories are at best extraneous and at worst disingenuous, as well as a waste of valuable time in the conference room.

In this engaging session, you will have fun and leave with awareness and experience you can use throughout your career and in your personal life.
